Flying Colors

Today marks the celebration of Holi, my most favored and vivid experience to date. India is full of energy and hypnotic hues, but the flying colors that explode during this festival create unforgettable memories. I've spent all afternoon rummaging through old photos of pink-laden streets and pigmented people and all I can muster up is, "What a party!"

These colours are so rich. I would love to go to this festival and the one I think it is in Italie where they have city wide tomato throwing fights. Just too cool!
Thanks for writing this post, I had always wondered what those pots of bright coloured dust was, I was sure it wasn`t all just spices!
